>Edit project file in VSNet


There are mainly 3 ways to get to your Vsnet project file to edit it.  (disclaimer: I am running Vsnet2008 and haven’t tried earlier nor later versions)

1) Open windows explorer and navigate to your project folder.  Open the project file (.csproj/.vbproj/…) in your favourite xml editor.

2) Install a tool that gives you an “Open folder in windows explorer” context menu item in the Solution explorer.  If I recall correctly the tool I am referring to is Microsoft’s Team foundation server power tools.  Please correct me if I am wrong.

3) Unload the project.  Use the context menu in Solution explorer to edit the project file.  Load the project again.
